SOURCE: We received a Model CPT 140 toaster. There was no Manual in box.

Hello RFord,

We're not the manufacturer of consumer products, but rather a group of regular people that have expertise about certain products and how to service and repair them locate manuals and schematics, etc.

With that in mind, here's an online copy of the manual for your toaster that you can download for free, directly from the Cuisinart web site that will get you by until you can obtain one from the manufacturer directly.

http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/cpt-140.pdf

I'd save a copy on your computer and then you can print it out, if you wish. You can also contact Cuisinart directly and request a manual be mailed to you, as it wasn't included with your toaster.

You can either email or call them. Their toll free phone number is 1-800-211-9604. If you wish, you can also visit the customer support info at this link: http://www.cuisinart.com/support/us.html

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: toaster won't stay in down position

We opened up our toaster and scraped some baked-on crumbs off the top of the electromagnet that controls the carriage catch. When we closed it back up, it worked again.

The thing you push down to activate toasting will not stay down


Check to insure the surge protector has not popped out. Reset and try again. Make sure its plugged in or it will not stay down.

1- Crumbs or part wearout may be keeping the plastic latch from engaging. If you have the toaster apart, you can compare the arm latching action of the good side with the bad side--maybe there is an obvious difference in the travel of the arm that keep it from engaging.---leaving the travel short even 1/8" can keep the latch from engaging.

2- If there is nothing obviously mechanically wrong, then it may be a control board malfunction. Make sure the 3-pin control board connector is plugged into the transformer/solenoid board. Since you are getting lights, this should be OK. You have at least one good board (the side that works) so you could plug that board into the other side to see if the arm stays down. For fun, you can plug the bad board into the other side to see if the other side now malfunctions. If the problem follows the board, then you have your answer.

If you know someone that understands electronics, they may be able to repair the board--have them look at electrolytic capacitor C1 and make sure it is good. If that part is bad, it can be replaced for about $1 by going to Fry's and purchasing a replacement capacitor. After a couple of years of use, a defective C1 may "dry out" and cause control board problems.

  • I repaired the same symtom that happened to one of the sides of my CPT-180 toaster. The magnets wouldn't engage due to a bad C1 capacitor on the circuit board that controlled that side of the toaster--the capacitor was bulged out on the bottom and turned out to be bad. I've attached some photos showing C1 bulged out compared to C1 on the good board.
    C1 is the main power supply capacitor and if it goes bad, the circuit board power supply won't function correctly. This can lead to a broad spectrum of problems like the lever not staying down due to the magnets not engaging or the toasting control/timing circuits malfunctioning. If you replace the capacitor, it is best in most cases to replace with the same value as the orginal (220uf on my toaster)---you can usually get a replacement capacitor at Fry's Electronics. Replacing with a higher capacitance may be acceptable, but you should understand the impact to the rest of the circuit before you substitute a higher capacitance value. The voltage rating and temperature rating of the replacement capacitor should be the same or greater or the capacitor will fail quickly. Note the max temperature rating of capacitor C1 is +105C---toasters get hot (duh!) and the temperature around the circuit board of this model gets quite warm, so the temperature rating of the capacitor is critical. Finally, make sure the substitute capacitor fits when installed (requires soldering) and does not interfere with surrounding circuitry or other toaster mechanics when the circuit board is put back in place.

How do i Opened my cuisinart toaster cpt180


The Instruction Booklet for the Cuisinart CPT-180C Classic Metal 4-Slice Toaster can be found at the following link:

http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/CPT-180C_en.pdf


Not sure what you are trying to open. There is a slide out catch tray for cleaning crumbs. There is no information in the booklet that suggests a need or a way to open the toaster.

Perhpas reviewing the booklet will answer your question.

Toaster latch does not stay down on Cusinart CPT-120 compact two slice toaster


for Cuisinart cpt160: If the latch will not stay down it is because the electromagnet at the base of the toaster, which is supposed to activate when you push the handle down, is burnt out. I pulled my toaster apart and did a test of that mechanism and found that the solenoid was fried (open circuit). There are no replacement parts.

Toaster arms will not stay down


Arms stay down by the mean of an electromagnet, controlled by a chip. If the wall outlet is functional, you should be able to turn on light by pressing the "defrost" or "bagel" button while the arm is held down. No light? the toaster is good for garbage!!

When i push the lever down to make toast, it does not stay


This is a problem, our old toaster had this problem, and it would only work if we jammed the handle down, but don't try this, only because ours broke after we tried this, but if you can send it to the manufacturure, they should be able to fix this. If you don't what to do this, please phone me at 505 9181, but please call me from 8:00-10:00, 2:30-8:00.
